Back to school and the basics: Our Leadership MVP Program

Let’s end August with a continuation of our discussion with our Founder and Head Coach, Dale Fallon.

You have just welcomed Dame Leadership's 10 New Leaders to The Communication Gym where they will participate in your Leadership MVP program. This is a program that provides both senior and emerging leaders a platform to gain skills in communicating with confidence, clarity, courage, and integrity. How did this program come to be?

About 20 years ago, when my eldest daughter was in 6th grade, I was asked to do a presentation for her 6th grade class. I think it was for “career day” and at that time, I was focused on coaching clients. I had 10 minutes to share my profession with them, but I wanted to do more than just tell them what I did, I wanted to show them what I did. And herein lies the genesis of the Leadership MVP Program!

I drew three intersecting circles on the chalkboard:

The circles represented these three questions:

  1. What are you good at?

  2. What do you love to do?

  3. What does the world need?

The point where these three questions intersect is the triangle. I wanted them to start thinking about that triangle, themselves, and what they could contribute.

How long have you offered this program?

2005-ish when I wrote a program for a local bank that I called Vision-Mission-Philosophy. It has since evolved and today we use Vision - Motivation - Philosophy.

What kind of person succeeds in this program?

This program is for people who want to live a life of integrity, who want to align their communication with what’s true, a person who wants to have more impact with their leadership, and leave an intentional legacy. Bravery, honesty, authenticity, and vulnerability are qualities that should bring them towards the program, not scare them off!
